Bank has been in existence since it was developed ages ago when the need to store valuables especially money other than in homes became necessary. They are safer as security could be provided compared to individuals having it stashed in their own houses. Banks are now everywhere around the world and there are also many kinds of banks that we can encounter.
In the community, there are banks established. They can have the rural bank of a particular place or a private bank established by a group of individuals. Community banks are also been established. But the national banks are well known to be used more than them.
But they still have their own advantages and so people are loyal to them. Aside from those banks are the international banks and multinational banks. Many of them are well known and are used mostly by businesses who have international transactions or the individuals who travel a lot due to their work or just having a vacation. They could also be used for sending money remittances.
Each type of banks have their own focus on a transaction but they also have the general services that people avail. Most banks serve as a deposit bank that people store their money and just have credit cards or ATM cards to use. Because they are more convenient now so they are mostly preferred by many people who like the idea.
The year banks existed is not the proof that they could continue to exists forever as there are banks who have been established and operating for 50 years but have to file for bankruptcy or other reasons.
